Waiting on Wednesday: Vendetta

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Vendetta by Catherine Doyle
Pub. Date: February 24, 2015

Goodreads says, "Blood Will Spill, Hearts Will Break: With a fierce rivalry raging between two warring families, falling in love is the deadliest thing Sophie could do. An epic debut set outside modern-day Chicago. For Sophie, it feels like another slow, hot summer in Cedar Hill, waitressing at her family’s diner and hanging out with her best friend Millie. But then someone moves into the long-abandoned mansion up the block--a family of five Italian brothers, each one hotter than the last. Unable to resist caramel-eyed Nicoli, Sophie finds herself falling for him -- and willfully ignoring the warning signs. Why are Nic's knuckles cut and bruised? Why does he carry an engraved switchblade? And why does his arrogant and infuriating older brother, Luca, refuse to let her see him? As the boys' dark secrets begin to come to light, Sophie is confronted with stinging truths about her own family, too. Suddenly, she's torn between two warring dynasties: the one she’s related to and the one she's now in love with. She'll have to choose between loyalty and passione. When she does, blood will spill, hearts will break. Because in this twisted underworld, dishonor can be the difference between life and death."
This is one of my most anticipated debuts of the year. I love the sound of it and I've read some awesome early reviews. Plus, it has that Godfather meets Romeo and Juliet vibe and I love me some Godfather and star-crossed lovers. What do you guys think?  


  1. This one released here earlier this month and it's been getting really good reviews. Arianne loved it!

  2. The cover doesn't do anything for me but this one has a few things that interest me! Chicago connection? Italian connection? Romeo and Juliet! Sounds like a good one!
    Here's my WoW!

  3. Loving the list. This author is pretty popular. :D
    I also loved how you put your list this week.

    My waiting on Wednesday!

  4. I've really loved all the mafia-themed YA that I've read. I agree with Kim that the cover seems off to me. It says "quirky contemporary" and this sounds more like tragic, starcrossed love.
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  5. Ooooh, the cover looks so dramatic, right? Definitely some mafia madness going on here - ha! Hope it's great! Can't wait to see what you think of A Touch of Stardust; looks like it could be a good one.

  6. Great choice! I've been wanting to read more books with an organized crime/mafia type plot. This one sounds really good and I like that it's also a retelling of Romeo and Juliet. It's definitely in my TBR.
